April 21, 2012 Tim Gauthier Blog

After listening to hours of submissions from remixers around the world, Joachim Garraud and Alesia have come to a final choice for the ‘Nox’ Remix Contest, and the winning remix comes from the Electro-heavy trio out of Sao Paolo known as Titanoz. In their rendition, the guys of Titanoz took ‘Nox’ on a maximal, grungy, Electro journey that truly stood apart from all other submissions yet stuck to the original elements of ‘Nox’ at the same time.

The second place remix comes from Londoner, Anarchystep, who brought ‘Nox’ to a new level with his wall-shaking Drumstep take on the original.

Joachim Garraud and Alesia would like to congratulate Titanoz on this great remix and thank each and every remixer for sending in their submissions. Keep an eye out for the Nox EP release out on Dim Mak Records this May!

With an air of new wave DJ skills while maintaining traditional DJ technique on the turntables, Datsik spins everything from modern dance music to hitting late ’80s hip-hop circa N.W.A. with a bang of dubstep bass drops.”
